First, let’s take a look at the basic difference between the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The core of the new Huawei Mate 20 Pro flagship is Huawei’s new Kirin 980 chipset. Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the only Android manufacturer that can take advantage of the vertical integration of silicon and mobile phones. The new Kirin 980 is an important chipset because it will power all of Huawei’s and Honor’s flagship devices for the rest of 2018 and 2019 – at least until the next generation of exposure. The Kirin 980 is not only important because it is used in Huawei’s own devices, and because it is the first 7nm SoC on the market based on the Arm Cortex-A76 and Android compatible. This means that no matter how the new Kirin 980 improves in terms of performance and power efficiency, it will largely represent almost all upcoming Android devices in 2019.
We can say that Huawei has surpassed Apple to become the world’s second largest best phones supplier and achieved their strategic goals. However, the company achieved this goal when it faced a huge struggle in the US market last year, and now they are no longer actively trying to compete. When asked what the company’s future strategy is, the answer is relatively simple: make the device experience better and better, in order to better serve the needs of users. Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are one of Huawei’s latest flagship device series. In this article, Xiaobian will discuss all aspects of these two new phones and see if Huawei has created something that is worth buying by our consumers.
For the world’s major mobile phone manufacturers
Huawei is one of the companies we pay special attention to. After all, it is a global technology giant, and Huawei is also very famous in the world. Although their products have been fluctuating, Huawei has consistently made progress in each generation of products, improving the quality of products and making them I can say that I am a household name abroad.
Release date: April 2018 | Weight: 155g | Size: 148.9 x 68.1 x 8mm | Operating system: Android Oreo | Screen size: 5.8 inches | Resolution: 1440 x 2960 | CPU: Exynos 8895 | Memory: 4GB | 64GB | Battery: 3000mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 8MP
The Kirin 980 is equipped with a four-arm Cortex-A76 – one pair with a main frequency of 2.6 GHz and the other with a main frequency of 1.92 GHz. Accompanying them are four Cortex-A55 cores up to 1.8GHz. In order to improve the CPU complex, the chipset is also the first chipset to introduce Arm’s new Mali G76 GPU with an MP10 configuration up to 720MHz.
Starting with the “standard” Mate 20, we saw a significant design shift compared to last year’s Mate 10. Mate 10 is a bit strange about the design of the device, because Huawei chose to place a fingerprint sensor on the front of the phone, even if the previous Mate phone and its brother Mate 10 Pro are on the back. The Mate 20 can now be traced back to the more “traditional” back-finger sensor and adopts a trend of almost borderless design, equipped with a very large 6.53″ 18.7:9 2244 x 1080 LCD screen. I found the most important new phone ( Not shown in the figure) Mate 20 is slightly narrower than Mate 10 and now has a width of 77.2mm. The width reduction of a few millimeters does not seem to be much, but it makes a huge difference in usability. I really like the new Mate 20.
Slim and longer form factor
But when I saw Mate 20 Pro against Mate 10 Pro, Xiaobian saw a more important design shift. The new Mate 20 Pro can only be described as Huawei’s attention to Samsung’s Galaxy S8 / S9 design, because this new phone has striking similarities in defining the ergonomics of Samsung phones. Therefore, the Mate 20 Pro is Huawei’s first mobile phone with a curved screen and a curved back. The screen is an OLED with a diameter of 6.39″, which is also the first Huawei mobile phone to launch more than 1080p – with a 3120 x 1440 panel and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9.
Similar to Mate 20, last year’s top cell phone was still snapped up. The Mate 20 Pro also slightly reduced the width of the phone, compared to the previous Mate 10 Pro. The new unit is now 72.3 mm wide and slightly narrower than the samsung galaxy s9 + by one millimeter. Combined with the new curved display and curved back, this creates a feel that is more comfortable than any Huawei device that was experienced before the small series. Battery life: Although the battery life is smaller than Samsung’s previous equipment, it is still quite Not bad. This is not surprising, but it is not much different from the performance of the Galaxy S9 and will last for a day… although you may want to recharge your phone wirelessly or quickly. For me, this is also a perfect shape factor I have encountered.
What really impressed me was the quality of the Mate 20 Pro
This is by far the best mobile phone for Huawei because it only feels very solid while maintaining a fluid design in all aspects. I think that the fact that Huawei does not use a sealing ring around the display glass makes the phone have an advantage in terms of feeling. Overall, it is clear that Huawei has taken Samsung’s design inspiration here. Not surprisingly, the curved Samsung Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the best mobile phone launched a year ago due to its superior design and now cheaper prices. It should remain in our top ten.
But I will never blame it, because imitation is the best form of flattery. Camera: The camera is still very powerful, despite being usurped by the oneplus 6t – the automatic mode provides a clean, clear and clear shot every time, combined with the screen quality makes you think To show you the best snapshot. There is an easy to use professional mode to take full advantage of your capture. Huawei has perfected ergonomics on the Mate 20 Pro.
Both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro displays continue to use the trend of displaying slots. The Mate 20 features a new, simple “teardrop” notch that accommodates the front camera while concealing the front sensor on the top and left side of the camera lens, as well as the headphone grille above. I have never really encountered the problem of Huawei gap (as I commented on the P20 and P20 Pro), and the new design of Mate 20 didn’t bother me. As usual, Huawei’s software can still block the notification bar to hide the gap, which I enabled in daily use.
On the other hand, the gap in Mate 20 Pro is the first choice for Android phones. Here, Huawei is very concerned about Apple’s iPhone X / XS gap – not only in terms of design, but also in terms of actual functionality. The new broader gap includes three new sensors/modules: point projectors, floodlights, and infrared cameras. This allows the Mate 20 Pro to use the same fast, reliable and secure face unlocking method as Apple’s FaceID.
Unfortunately, the broader gap is indeed a compromise
because at this point, I think the notification bar lacks enough space to display a more relevant status icon, and the operating system will overflow the status icon to the left “ear”, which is usually It is a dedicated to notification icon.
I am not a big user of face unlocking, but Huawei’s implementation seems to be seamless, fast and reliable. One of the big surprises of the Mate 20 Pro is that face unlocking is not a substitute for fingerprint unlocking, but an option. You may have noticed that there is no fingerprint sensor on the back, because the Mate 20 Pro places it under the screen on the front of the phone. Again, implementation is also good at unlocking reliability and accuracy, although I hope it will be a bit faster. What I feel is missing is some better (or any) tactile feedback when using the sensor. If you choose not to use the fingerprint sensor or return to the regular password unlock method.
At the bottom of the phone, an amazing speaker grille appears on the Mate 20 Pro. Screen: The 5.8-inch curved screen was considered the best on the market when it was launched.
remained stable due to its 18.5:9 aspect ratio extending across the phone. Its color reproduction and contrast look very uniform, if you don’t have it all the way up to 4D HD. The sound here comes from the USB-C port, which is very strange. Plugging in the cable will obviously make the sound disappear, so don’t expect to play music while charging your phone. Also at the bottom we found the SIM tray and microphone. On the Mate 20, we did find the speaker grille.
but the phone was only IP53 certified, not the IP68 rating of the Mate 20 Pro. Unfortunately, this is the only speaker on the Mate 20 because the headset cannot be used as a stereo tweeter. The SIM tray on the Mate 20 has been downgraded to the left side of the phone.
Mate 20 does have one thing Mate 20 Pro is not a 3.5mm headphone jack. Similarly.
Huawei decided to give a common model a jack when removing the normal model from the Pro model
which confuses me – again when the vendor tries to describe the deletion of a feature as a benefit.
Both the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro equipped with an infrared emitter on top of the phone
that can used to control a variety of devices.
Finally, the middle part of the back of the two phones is the camera:
Mate 20 and V40 are one of the rare new generation devices.
including wide-angle, normal and telephoto camera modules. Huawei has a square design layout and a flash LED in the fourth incision.
it hopes that this design is unique to them and can be immediately identified and attributed to the company’s equipment. Mate 20 Pro is an easy way to upgrade your nearest
flagship smartphone without having to pay the full price of the slightly superior Galaxy S9.
It has an excellent camera and an enviable curved screen design. Non-center aligned rear fingerprint sensors are painful, but you can overcome them if the price is right. The camera hardware itself is confusing because there is no module shared between the two phones.
The Mate 20 comes with a 12MP main camera.
f/1.8 aperture, 2x optical zoom 8MP f/2.4 module and 16MP f/2.2 wide-angle unit.
The camera configuration of the Mate 20 Pro is familiar.
as the 40MP f / 1.8 main camera and the 3x optical zoom 8MP f / 2.4 module .
look the same as in the P20 Pro – a new 20MP f / 2.2 wide-angle module has been added here.
Overall, both Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro represent Huawei’s design shift and promise to provide a lot of functionality. Construction quality is definitely an advantage for new equipment, especially for the Mate 20 Pro. What do you think about the detailed evaluation of the small editors here?
